A goal met; new horizons opened!
My Dear, Dear Friends and Deeply Loved Ones,
I am proud to report a small miracle. I woke this morning to my friend and the director/editor of the video on this site, Gabriel Goldstein, knocking at my door gleefully announcing that we had made it. In less than 6 days we raised $5,000 for the Sufi Second Line Project. We are so grateful for all of your support and encouragement, and humbled by the faith that you have shone in our ability to meet our goal.
Tom has informed me that two dates are now etched in stone with musicians and back-up singers all ready to converge in Nashville and make this album a reality. This would not be happening if it weren't for you.
For all those friends of yours and ours who were thinking about contributing but are now less inclined to do so because we made our goal, please tell them to reconsider! The $5,000 is just for the recording and mixing and mastering of the album. There will be numerous costs afterward- pressing the album, cover art, distribution, etc. Every dollar contributed will be used for the production of this album even if we double the current amount. We still have five days before they close down the giving portion of the site and every little bit contributed helps. Thank you!
One can't help but feel we are all on the cusp of something truly spectacular. Time to take the plunge!
Much Love, Peace and Blessings in Every Language,
Tom & Andrew
